Our Philosophy

The Humanities Department seeks to maximise the learning experiences of students through experiential learning and infusing critical thinking skills via an enriched curriculum.

Every Catholic High student has an analytical and open mind who appreciates the interconnectedness between the physical and human environments, past and present events so as to develop a wider perspective of the world around him.

Our Approach

The Humanities Department aims to help students develop the dispositions and competencies based on the 21st Century skills.

Inquiry-based learning is employed as the main pedagogical approach, to encourage the development of skills such as critical thinking and problem.

  • Relevant
